Holidays on Crete

Crete offers so much more than just a standard holiday. Being the most southern island of Europe it provides a gateway to ancient history, cultures and traditions and offers the most amazing scenery. This is paradise for every culture, water and nature lover. Rough and rocky inlands seamlessly change into jungle like woods. Phenomenal sandy beaches where mass tourism gathers morph into romantic pebble beaches and hidden laguna’s. Add the clearest waters of the Mediterranean…. forgotten palm beaches… as if you were in the Caribbean.

The accommodations offered are personally picked and situated all over the island. Whether you are looking for apartments or villa’s: the atmosphere in all of them will make you feel at home while getting acquainted with the island and its beautiful people. This overall welcoming feeling makes every accommodation suitable for both couples as well as singles or those traveling alone. No nasty surprises here: what you see is what you get. We offer apartments in Kokkini Hani on the north coast, Elounda in the north-east, Mirtos in the south-east and Paleochora at the most south western tip of Crete. Please read our detailed description of these villages and the accommodations we picked especially for you.

Activities on Crete

In our section Activities and Excursions we provide you with a comprehensive overview of all the activities we offer. With all of these excursions our aim is to show you the real Crete, away from mass tourism.  On our culture tours we will dive deep into the traditions of the Cretan, where the overwhelming hospitality will warm your hearts. Those of you into water sports will be left breathless with the amazing underwater world of the Libyan and Aegean See while we snorkel and dive in Europe’s clearest waters. The sun and beach lover will be spoiled at his sunbed on the most varied beaches possible. With us you have the possibility to combine all of these excursions and activities into the holiday you have always dreamed of… as we said before: tailor made.
